Eating a meat-only diet provides some vitamins and fatty acids in their pre-formed state, cats and many other obligate carnivores have lost the ability to make these amino acids and vitamins in their own bodies the way herbivores or omnivores do. They don't need to break it down in their bodies since the animals they are eating have already done it for them.

Yeah, it were those exremist ones that think harry potter, non-chritian music and pokemon turns their kids into satanists. Other ones I know had a ban of imagination as a whole and also banned their girls from wearing other things than long skirts and braided long hair.
Even some more normal ones I know suprise you by saying things like that they believe it would be best if sex education would occur only after marriage, evolution is a weird theory that shouldn't be thought in schools and healthcare should pay to fix homosexuality. I guess I live in evangelicalism hell.

Is it better to start with one cat or two? If it makes any difference I'll probably (but not definitely) be getting them as kittens. I'm also interested in the "socialisation" process since I'm unfamiliar with it but hear that you need to give the cat space when you first move it into your house.
I ask because I'm planning to get a cat when I have a stable home in a year or so & am doing research beforehand. I have owned a dog in the past if that makes a difference.

two, but for the love of all hell, avoid two males if possible. you will end up with all your stuff marked for territory and a prison alpha/bitch dynamic by the time they hit adolescence.

My biggest problem with two cats is if I'll have to get two of more poop boxes or whatever you Americans call it
>>
>>3117319
does spaying not solve that? also wouldn't females have similar issues?
>>
>>3117423
Litterboxes, and yes you'll need more of those if you want to make sure they use it. One for each cat + 1 is the general advice, all in different rooms.

>>3117319
>>3117896
You'll aleays end up with all your stuff marked, even with one cat. They just normally never use piss for it inside the house if they're neutered, like each other and there isn't another cat next door they want to get rid of.
Alpha/bitch dynamic can happen in any pair if their characters Don't match, the only difference In male pairs I know of is that they tend to playfight a lot more and pretty brutal sometimes.
>>
>>3117258
Does depend on your time more than on the room, if you're not around much, two is better. But you could also adopt one of the sad, old, unsocial leftover cats that would otherwise spend their life in a cage if they even let them live.

I would just recommend not getting young cats if you value you seep, you'll either end up with one asking for play time every other hour of the day and night or with two that'll run around happily but might make enough noise you won't get much sleep either.

Join me anons, take the bamboopill. When this dying world runs low on oxygen, we will return it to its former glory with expansive groves of bamboo. We will rebuild the world with bamboo.

The destruction of complex ecosystems like the amazon rainforest isn't a bad thing just because of the oxygen you retard.

We should ban concrete for residential buildings.
America uses wood, and this actually reduces their CO2 levels (though it is never mentioned everywhere).
>>
>>3118010
Ecosystems are a temporary disaster and nature will eventually reach equilibrium through the adaptation and evolution of the survivors. Oxygen will be a problem unless we tear down the concrete jungle and restore it, which will never happen as far as all the big corporations are concerned.

>>3118015
Doesn't make sense, that way oyxgen won't be a problem either eventually, it's just a poison that killed a lot of life until some weird parts of it adapted to it.

By wiping out small animals there are knock on effects to other flora and fauna as well. Pests can have impacts on entire ecosystems, not just directly on their target prey.
For example some pest deer get into a forest they are not native to and decimate a vulnerable plant species. But who cares, it is just a plant right? Nope. The plant supported caterpillars which supported bird species which supported predator species and the links can go on and on.

I think that was ruled out because we share more genetic markers with chimps than with gorillas, indicating a slightly earlier split for gorillas. I might be misremembering though.

Recently I've been seeing a strange-looking insect that I've never encountered before. It looks like a cross between a firefly and a wasp (has a firefly-like body shape with black and orange markings on the wing covers and a yellow/orange and black striped pulsating abdomen). They're always on flowers trying to suck up nectar. I live in Ohio, but I wonder if these are some kind of invasive species, because I have literally never seen them before until very recently. I'll try to get a picture tomorrow. I don't usually like to ask about bug IDs on /an/, but I can't find anything like this online and it's too weird to ignore.
